Recall that a five-man Post-Graduate Students Government Electoral Committee chaired by Comr Gregory Mbeh of Modern Languages Department was instituted on 17th October to conduct elections into three offices of President, Financial Secretary and Treasurer

Recall that comr. Bassey Williams who was sworn in as president barely two months ago was relief from office for alleged misappropriation of funds

However, the erstwhile Director of Socials, Mr Imeh Eyakene, resigned from his office of DoS to vie for president but was reportedly disqualified by the electoral committee on grounds of leading a protest during his undergraduate days.
